Cell Phone Security in the Age of the Smartphone

By Robert G. Yetman, Jr. Editor At Large

Cell phones used to be just…phones. Years ago, while there were ways for those communications to be accessed, the idea of cell phones as prime hacking and eavesdropping targets was barely a consideration in those days. Now, of course, things are different, and it has a lot to do with the fact that cell phones are computers. “Smartphones,” as they are called, can do everything your laptop and desktop computers can do, which means they are every bit the targets for hacking as your stand-alone computers and tablets. If you’re like many folks nowadays, you find yourself increasingly reliant on your cell phones not only for your electronic communications with the rest of the world, but for things like banking transactions and other sensitive operations that are largely the centerpieces of your day-to-day life.

Given all of this, how much thought have you put into the security of your cell phone, to include your cell phone communications? Hacks of cell phones are becoming more common as it is recognized by criminals that so many people now perform so many operations on their cell phones, and the capturing of cell phone communications is now an ever-present threat, as well.
